The neon signs of the Theater glitters trough the spray of the Jean Tinguely fountain in Basel.
Jean Tinguely (1925 - 1991) was a Swiss painter and sculptor. His speciality where kinetic nonsense machines out of scrap. He was married to the sculptor Nikki de St. Phalle.
In the Tinguely fountain nine mechanical eminences are placed in a shallow pool of water and are in constant motion, spouting water and talking to each other the way the actors and performers once did in exact the same spot.

Your note is crucial to understand this scene Daniel, so thank you for that. What a brilliant idea to have this fountain reenacting the one time activities of the people here, brilliant.
All the best

Nice creative capture of the fountains in Basel. The B&W format adds atmosphere to the shot and you have captured the dynamism of the sculpture that was intended by the artist. Perfect lighting conditions make this an excellent presentation.

Good opportunistic shot, Well done - I like the way you have used the artificial light to highlight the dancing water spray so well and freeze the action against the dark background. The exposure quality is spot on with good ref point in bold lettering and the mono treatment is just great with excellent tonal contrast. Congrats, tfs
